Sonnenblick-Eichner Company Arranges $22 Million Loan to Refinance Doubletree by Hilton Los Angeles-Commerce

USA, Beverly Hills, California. November 29, 2022

Sonnenblick-Eichner Company announced today that it has arranged $22 million of non-recourse first mortgage financing for the leasehold interest in the Doubletree by Hilton Los Angeles-Commerce, a 201-room hotel located in the city of Commerce, approximately six miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

The five-year loan was placed with an international money-center bank at a fixed interest rate of 5.9% for the entire term. Proceeds were used to pay off a maturing CMBS loan and provided for a return of equity to the partnership.

Amenities at the hotel include a full-service restaurant and bar, and approximately 9,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. The Hotel also features an outdoor pool and jacuzzi, Fitness Center, Business Center, and up to 420 surface parking spaces.

Elliot Eichner, a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, commented, "We were successful in arranging a five-year fixed rate loan, which in this market is a preferred execution given the high short-term SOFR rate. Fixing the rate mitigates the risk of increasing interest rates, as well as eliminating the need to purchase an interest-rate cap."

Patrick Brown, also a Principal of Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, added: "We were able to identify a lender that spent the time to work through and understand the complexities associated with leasehold financings."

Social Media: Tailor Made Content


Social media has evolved into an indispensable medium for the hospitality industry. It has forever altered how hotels communicate with their customers and it has redefined how advertising and marketing are conducted. Currently, the biggest social media platforms are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube and TikTok. Each has their own appeal and demographic. In order to reach the users of an individual social media platform, it is necessary for hotels to tailor their content to each platform's audience. For example, LinkedIn is more business-oriented so content might be directed to conference organizers, meeting planners, travel agencies, etc. Facebook has a more mature user base so they might be looking for family vacation packages, cultural experiences, or recreational sightseeing trips.  TikTok is popular with a younger audience who might want to know about concerts, sporting events, and gaming competitions, while Pinterest and Instagram focus on exquisite visuals and aesthetics. The February Hotel Business Review will document how some hotels are successfully integrating social media strategies into their operations.
